I suggest that you remove authority to the command line for all users - they don't need it.  If you require a new version of WRKOUTQ, the old S/38 (pre TAATOOL) even then had examples of converting the WRKOUTQ OUTPUT(*PRINT) command and from this you could build an a program that allows them do everything else bar delete.  In fact, you could even ignore job logs, service dumps, etc. 
 
In the world of "open" environments there should always be doors that only open for a few.
